Work While You Study and After You Graduate

It is possible to work in Saskatchewan while you are here as a student. Some institutions may offer co-op/internship opportunities for students depending on their program of study. With the changes to the International Student Program, full-time international students enrolled at designated post-secondary educational institutions may work part-time off campus and full-time during scheduled school breaks without a work permit. However, if you wish to work as part of a co-op/internship program, you will need to apply for a co-op work permit.

To learn more about your eligibility to work while you study, visit Studying and Working in Canada as an International Student.

After You Graduate

After you finish your program of studies, you may have several options to remain in Saskatchewan.

The Post-Graduation Work Permit Program provides eligible international graduating students with an opportunity to work in Canada for up to three years. Visit Stay in Canada after Graduation for more information.

Saskatchewan's growing economy and population have contributed to competitive wages and strong job prospects in the province. There are many quality work opportunities for international graduates.
